Yogini, teacher, dancer, healer & author, I was born in Brazil and have been practicing and teaching traditional yoga and classical Indian Odissi dance for over 30 years.
I am the author of the book Yoga and The Art of Mudras and of the instructional CD, Pranayama: May Breath Be Our Prayer.
As founder of the Bhakti Nova School of Yoga and Dance, I lead classes, workshops, and teacher-trainings internationally, independently, and in collaboration with my husband, kirtan artist Jai Uttal. I live in Fairfax, California, with Jai and our son, Ezra. I perceive Yoga as a healing art, my connection to this ancient practice is reflected in my unique teachings.
Serving humanity with a healthy physical body, with a clear mind and an altruistic heart is critically essential now. Let us via this beautiful vehicle of our bodies, bring more light, more love, more devotion, more kindness to the world.
